The three main trigonometric graphs are:

- Sine graph
- Cosine graph
- Tan graph

x^{0} | sin x |

0 | 0 |

90 | 1 |

180 | 0 |

270 | -1 |

360 | 0 |

**Characteristics:**

- Period is 360
^{0}. It repeats itself every 360 degrees. - Maximum value = +1
- Minimum value = -1

x^{0} | cos x |

0 | 1 |

90 | 0 |

180 | -1 |

270 | 0 |

360 | 1 |

**Characteristics:**

- Period is 360
^{0}. It repeats itself every 360 degrees. - Maximum value = +1
- Minimum value = -1

x^{0} | tan x |

0 | 0 |

90 | ∞ |

180 | 0 |

270 | ∞ |

360 | 0 |

**Characteristics:**

- Period is 180
^{0}. It repeats itself every 180 degrees. - Maximum value = +∞
- Minimum value = -∞

x^{0} | sin x | 2 sin x | 1 + 2 sin x |

0 | 0 | 0 | 1 |

90 | 1 | 2 | 3 |

180 | 0 | 0 | 1 |

270 | -1 | -2 | -1 |

360 | 0 | 0 | 1 |

This is stretched by a factor 2 parallel to the y-axis and then moved up by 1 - a translation of 1 in the positive y-axis.

**Now, in order to complement what you have just learnt, work out the following questions:**

- Sketch the following graphs:
- 2 cos x
- 1 - 3 sin x
- 2 tan x
- 2 + 3 sin x

- Find the period, maximum value and minimum value of the following functions:
- 3 cos x
- 1 - 2sin 2x
- 3 cos 2x
- 2 + 3 sin x/2

This is a vast collection of tutorials, covering the syllabuses of GCSE, iGCSE, A-level and even at undergraduate level.
They are organized according to these specific levels.

The major categories are for core mathematics, statistics, mechanics and trigonometry. Under each category, the tutorials are grouped according to the academic level.

This is also an opportunity to pay tribute to the intellectual giants like Newton, Pythagoras and Leibniz, who came up with lots of concepts in maths that we take for granted today - by using them to serve mankind.

~~"There's no such thing as a free lunch."~~

The best things in **nature** are free with no strings attached - fresh air, breathtakingly warm sunshine, scene of meadow on the horizon...

Vivax Solutions, while mimicking nature, offers a huge set of tutorials along with interactive tools for free.

Please use them and excel in the sphere of science education.

Everything is free; not even **registration** is required.

Maths is challenging; so is finding the right book. K A Stroud, in this book, cleverly managed to make all the major topics crystal clear with plenty of examples; popularity of the book speak for itself - 7^{th} edition in print.
